Maura is originally from San Antonio, TX but spent most of her life in the Sandhills. She went to UNC-Chapel Hill where she studied biology and Hispanic literature and culture, before attending Georgetown University School of Medicine. She is especially interested in pulmonary and critical care medicine and is very excited to return to North Carolina for residency! In her free time, Maura enjoys playing with her German Shepherd, Tonks, running, rock climbing, and horseback riding.
